Well, what have we here? Just when we thought Rihanna, 28, and Drake, 29, parted ways due to their hectic schedules and sky-rocketing careers, there seems to be an added factor to their split. Throughout their blossoming romance, the “Controlla” rapper still had hearts in his eyes for another music mogul, Nicki Minaj. “Drake could never look at Rihanna and tell her that he’s in love with Nicki too,” a source close to the Views star tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He doesn’t have that type of swag to be brutally honest to a woman to that extent, let alone Rihanna. But Ri’s definitely not stupid. She already knew that.” Wait, what?!

Our source continued, “Several weeks ago they had an argument about Nicki because Drake kept rapping the lyrics to a few of he and Nicki’s collabs and going on and on about how he and Nicki are magical when they’re on a track together.” This didn’t appear to sit very with the Barbadian beauty, who got the impression his heart was elsewhere. “Ri felt offended and thought Drake was being high key disrespectful when they themselves have worked together. Words were said, Drake apologized but Ri still feels some type of way and is jealous of his love for Nicki.” Wow!

Luckily, Nicki has been off the market some time, thanks to her hot and heavy romance with Meek Mill, so we’re guessing a messy love triangle won’t be happening any time soon. Even though it seems like Drizzy is moving on from RiRi with ease, he did post a cryptic message following their breakup. “Too mixed up in drama to free my mind but I’m praying for you even in your darkest times.” On Oct. 10, E! reported that Drake and RiRi called it quits on their budding romance, but she’s a boss chick, so we’re sure plenty of suitors are already lining around the block.

HollywoodLifers, does it matter that Drake still talks so highly of Nicki to Rihanna!? Let us know!
